"Take your appetite on a trip to the vineyards of Victoria's north-east,
where you'll find great food as well as top wine" writes Richard Cornish

TO EAT

"...Out on All Saints Road is a magnificent castellated winery at the end of an elm-lined drive. All Saints is a family owned winery pouring some excellent Rhone varietals at the cellar door that match dishes served in the award-winning Terrace Restaurant. Start with a plate of spring veg and goat's curd with a glass of viognier, and perhaps a nutmeg-laced spinach mousse with mussels in a rich sauce with a splash of chardonnay. A short drive away is their sister winery, St Leonards, offering very casual meals and platters from their rustic cellar door by the banks of the Murray...

TO DRINK

In the main street of town is a newly opened wine bar founded by the children of the Brown family who own All Saints. It is a fun, open space fitted out in modern, rustic style, with shared central table and stools, bar staff in leather aprons and an intimate enclosed laneway bar for a late night tete-a-tete. Expect an eclectic mix of local and global wines linked by a common factor - they are all made by small family firms."
